    Default E Collar and Skunk Smell

    My dog was skunked last week during training. Unfortunately she swam before I could get the peroxide/baking soda/soap mixture on her so I am still battling the smell. I've bathed her twice with the concoction but the faint odor remains even when dry. I know it'll last a while after getting wet....we've been down this road before but I got her doctored up before she got wet. Does anyone have any super tips besides rinse and repeat

    Another problem I have is her ecollar. It's pretty smelly. Can I dunk it in the same mixture without ruining the reciever? It's a Garmin Pro 550. Thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Go to Amazon for Skunk Off. Enzyme product. Best thing I have ever used. Dogs or clothes. Constant companion in my ruckk and dog bag.

    Came across this video yesterday. Very interesting, easy to carry some of it with you.

    I buried my strap collar in kitty litter for a few days and it took the odor away.
